Improve your RSS: for full text feeds, replace large site images with email friendly images. Customize summaries with images and beautiful excerpts.
Send Images to RSS bridges the gap between large websites and small emails, by replacing images in your feed with smaller, email friendly images, and attempting to add markup which email clients can handle.
Between larger monitors, retina screens, and better image optimization, the images we serve up on our websites are larger than they've ever been. RSS to email services such as MailChimp, however, are constrained to what email clients can display, which is small, small, small.

Send Images to RSS makes it easy to create beautiful, email friendly RSS campaigns, with minimal setup required, regardless of your feed setup.

NOTE: it is up to you to check that your feed output is still working, especially in your email system of choice, once it's installed. I've attempted to set it up to handle XHTML or HTML5, and function even if your feed is wonky, but please double check, and let me know if you have issues, and if so, what specifically they are.
Special thanks to Gretchen Louise for her summary feed contributions.
